National Plant Monitoring Scheme

Spend a day exploring the methodology of the National Plant Monitoring Scheme and meeting like-minded volunteers. You will be taken through what is required as an NPMS volunteer and then head outside to practise setting up survey plots.

The National Plant Monitoring Scheme (NPMS) helps understanding on what is happening to different habitats across the UK. They are looking for volunteers to take part by recording plants against a checklist in five small plots twice a year. They are particularly keen to hear from people who live in less populated areas - or who would like to visit a particular rural area twice a year for the purposes of the survey.

Events will also take place at the following dates and venues:

  • Kindrogan FSC, nr Blairgowrie, Perthshire - Saturday 10 June
  • Kirkton, Crianlarich, Perthshire - Saturday 17 June
